Montezuma

-A A +A

Montezuma (1865, 10,280 feet), begun as a lofty silver mining center on the headwaters of the Snake River, once boasted 100 structures, of which perhaps one-fourth survive. The rustic town is threatened by Keystone Resort, which is creeping up the Snake River. Cabins and a few public lodges generally are built into south-facing slopes for warmth and sunshine.
